    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 102:12795-800. 2005
    ..Thus, acquisition of a heritable symbiont appears to be a major mode of adaptation to natural enemy pressure in these insects...
  2. pmc Costs and benefits of a superinfection of facultative symbionts in aphids
    Kerry M Oliver
    Department of Entomology, University of Arizona, 410 Forbes Building, Tucson, AZ 85721, USA
    Proc Biol Sci 273:1273-80. 2006
    ..Our results indicate that in addition to host-symbiont interactions, interactions among the symbionts themselves probably play a critical role in determining the distributions of symbionts in natural populations...
  3. pmc Population dynamics of defensive symbionts in aphids
    Kerry M Oliver
    Department of Entomology, University of Arizona, Tucson, AZ 85721, USA
    Proc Biol Sci 275:293-9. 2008
    ..The declining frequencies of Hamiltonella-infected aphids in population cages in the absence of parasitism indicate a probable cost to infection and may explain why Hamiltonella remains at intermediate frequencies in natural populations...

    Kerry M Oliver
    Department of Entomology, University of Georgia, Athens, GA 30602, USA
    Science 325:992-4. 2009
    ..Thus, phages vector ecologically important traits, such as defense against parasitoids, within and among symbiont and animal host lineages...
  5. pmc Parasitic wasp responses to symbiont-based defense in aphids
    Kerry M Oliver
    Department of Entomology, University of Georgia, Athens, GA 30605, USA
    BMC Biol 10:11. 2012
    ..If more than one parasitoid egg is deposited into a single aphid host (superparasitism), then additional complements of these factors may contribute to the successful development of the single parasitoid that emerges...
  6. doi request reprint Facultative symbionts in aphids and the horizontal transfer of ecologically important traits
    Kerry M Oliver
    Department of Entomology, University of Georgia, Athens, GA 30602, USA
    Annu Rev Entomol 55:247-66. 2010
    ..Although transmitted maternally with high fidelity, facultative symbionts occasionally move horizontally within and between species, resulting in the instantaneous acquisition of ecologically important traits, such as parasitoid defense...
